Are you going to take part in Judy’s sock knit along in November? I’ve got to finish up this pair in the next few days so I can start a new pair. She’s going to use the same method I use — two at a time on two circular needles. Click the “Socks” tab at the top of the page to see the book and needles I use.

I’m home …for now

Drove back from Nebraska today…just in time for Sunday Night Football. Go Vikings!

I leave again in 2 days and haven’t even thought about what I might get done other than unpacking, laundry, and repacking. Maybe a little piecing??

You know I love it!

We were a small group today at the Nebraska HeartStrings sew-in but we had a great time and got 7 quilts tied and bound.

On the Road again!

This time to Nebraska for a HeartStrings sew-in.

And since I was in Fremont, I drove by Accuquilt to see my Barn Quilt in person.

My current piecing project

Just in case you’d forgotten, I’m working on a scrappy version of my 16 patch and Pinwheels quilt. I just love these blocks! I didn’t work all that long today and most of my time was spent making half square triangles but I did get a few more blocks up on the design wall.

Home but sick!

Why is it that I seem to get ill on vacation?

I ran to the post office and the grocery store but other than that I’ve been curled up on the sofa in front of the TV. Since I had technical difficulties with my blogging app during vacation, I thought I’d share a few more photos from our week. If anyone is interested there are lots more in my online album but let me warn you, along with some great scenery photos — there are tons of family ¬†photos that will probably bore you to death!

Golden Gate Park

Yesterday Chris talked Keith into a game of Disk Golf at Golden Gate Park. Becky kept score for them and I cheered Keith on. Today we’re on our way home.

Celebrating Chris’ birthday today

A visit to Muir Woods and a wine tasting tour. I think the butterfly was my favorite photo of the day although I loved the trees too.

San Francisco!!

One of my favorite cities. I was having some technical difficulties posting from the train but have lots of photos to sort and upload eventually once I get home. In the meantime, here are a few from today.

Rain then snow now sunshine. The views are great today.
